Windy O’’Connor

Though visually, Windy’s paintings are non-representational, she always starts with a thought, feeling, or emotion to set the tone of her painting. With color, texture, and movement, she tells a story through the energy of her brushstroke. Her compositions are a combination of color blocking, lines, and rhythm with color. Vibrant and on a large scale, Windy is able to share her passion with everyone that comes in contact with her work.

Kent Youngstrom

Kent is a no frills, go-getter kind of guy with a raw unadulterated passion for what he does. A self-taught painter who paints from sun up till sun down, Youngstrom started painting one day because he simply wanted to. After several orders and new opportunities arose, he woke up one day and realized that he was a full time painter. Youngstrom is abstract in that he paints what he feels. He is not defined by a genre, he just does what he loves to do, and he is happy and eager to share with whomever will listen.

Sharon Dowell explores many concepts in her works. She is especially interested in changing environments, man versus nature, and abandoned structures or spaces. So while she starts with a specific idea or place, she alters it to capture the energy it exudes. Her compositions are partially abstract: some images within her works are representational or recognizable to the viewer.

Charlotte Foust

An abstract artist in the truest of forms, Charlotte Foust is an intuitive explorer. She enjoys creating non-objective art because she finds the process honest and satisfying. Mostly experimenting with mixed media on canvas or paper, Wendy starts with a line or a brush stroke and explores the surface resulting in an idea or image that has never been seen or discovered.
